Honda Syoryu: Big Wave, 2016, Madake bamboo and rattan

Tai Modern, 1601 Paseo de Peralta, 505-984-1387
Using traditional basketry techniques, Japanese bamboo artist Honda Syoryu  creates rhythmic, organic sculptural forms that capture a sense of oscillating  movement. Syoryu brings two new bodies of work to Tai Modern for his second solo exhibition: the series Spring and Ring. “When I make my art, I am in constant dialogue with the bamboo,” he said in a statement. “This material’s unique pliability allows me to draw beautiful, naturally curving lines in space.” The exhibit opens Friday, July 28, with a reception at 5 p.m. Syoryu presents a bamboo workshop on Saturday, July 29, at 3 p.m. (by reservation) and at 4 p.m. (walk-in).
